Roni Beth Tower

Roni Beth Tower's talk and PowerPoint presentation at Après Midi was all about Miracle at Midlife: A Transatlantic Romance. Her memoir "chronicling the two-year courtship between a divorced American attorney living on a converted barge in the center of Paris and an empty-nested clinical and research psychologist who works from her home in Connecticut" was the story of how they conquered the "challenges of internal demons (mostly hers) and external threats (mostly kids, careers and culture) as they shared adventures in their respective worlds and are both transformed as they create a life together."

Roni Beth grew up in Akron, Ohio, majored in religion at Barnard College, and earned her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Yale University. Later in life she taught clinical psychology to graduate students at Teachers College, Columbia University. As a psychologist, she published seventeen articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, six book chapters, three entries in Blackwell's The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Psychology, work for hire in three books edited by Mark Levine and Stephen Pollan, and one book review.

"Miracles at Midlife" is her first memoir. She and her husband live in Tarrytown, New York, within easy visiting distance of their six grandchildren. She loves yoga, dance, quilting, and bringing comfort and joy to people.

Everyone could relate to their story, even if they hadn’t met the true love of their life as Roni Beth and David. David sat at the back of the room smiling like a Cheshire Cat as Roni Beth told their story.
